Korvburger Lunch To Be Held Saturday

The American Scandinavian Heritage Foundation will host a Korvburger Lunch, open to the public on Saturday, April 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Tree of Life Lutheran Church, formerly Holy Trinity, 825 Forest Ave., Jamestown.

Prior to the Korvburger Lunch, the foundation will hold its annual membership meeting beginning at 10 a.m. The meeting agenda will include election of officers and board members, discussion of ASHF 2024 events and programs, the organization’s financial position, active members who passed away since the previous annual meeting and scholarships awarded.

The Korvburger is a variation of the traditional Scandinavian holiday sausage created by the late Norm Owen, longtime ASHF president, as a way to introduce Swedish Korv to a wider audience, in particular through the Scandinavian Folk Festival held each year on the third full weekend in July. Owen spent most of his career in the meat industry and worked in Wegman’s meat department for 20 years prior to his passing in January 2017.

The Korvburger is served on a special Ecklof’s Bakery rye roll with authentic Swedish lingonberries and Scandinavian style spicy brown mustard. Korvburgers will be available on an eat-in or take-out basis for $5 each. Bottled water will be available for $1. Coffee will be served free in the casual conversation “fika” area with Swedish folk music. There will be no formal program. Korvburgers will be sold from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. while supplies last.

The American Scandinavian Heritage Foundation celebrates and promotes Scandinavian culture, customs, language and traditional events throughout the year. New members are always welcome.
